The Sox have tried "both" approaches the last six years. How has it worked out eh?

Thought so.

Oh please, the Giants GM, Brian Sabean had been under fire from fans for YEARS because of his shotty record of finding talent. That deal he gave to Barry Zito was, for most of it, a worse bust than Adam Dunn.

They just got lucky and had a few things go right and it worked. What people don't like to admit about baseball is that, at the front office level, it's more or less 99% luck.

But either way, thinking that you have to go one or the other route is just stupid. The Royals have been rebuilding through their farm system for almost 20 years. How has that worked, eh?

Thought so.
